How to get started in Cybersecurity

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Over the course the last few years, I have mentored several people who are just figuring out how to get started in cybersecurity. Some of them are interested in becoming Penetration Testers, some are interested in Cyber Threat Intelligence. I would like to break down the artificial wall some people think exists that it is difficult to get started in cybersecurity. Part of my comments will be drawn from one of my blog postings, which has a section about this topic, available here: https://phoenixts.com/blog/what-is-cyber/

Attendees will learn how to get started on a path in cybersecurity, beyond (but including), the traditional bootcamps, and self-study methodologies. I also intend to take questions and make this a participative presentation/discussion. I will have very few slides, mostly so that attendees can get a link to the materials for access post-presentation.
